Console Flops: Atari 5200

We all know the name Atari and the first thing that comes to mind is the Atari 2600. The Atari 2600 was an awesome console the revolutionized home gaming. As the years went by Atari released other consoles. The next console was the Atari 5200 and it was a very bad console. This console came and went and was notorious for the controls not working. They released the Atari 7800 which was a better console because it was backwards compatible and played Atari 2600 games and you could also use the Atari 2600 controls with the Atari 7800. The Atari 5200 could have been a good console but it was not made well at all and they tried to do different hi-tech things with this console that weren't hi-tech at all it was nothing but a pain in the butt. The Angry Video Game Nerd did a review on the Atari 5200 and if you would like to see his experience with the Atari 5200 you can watch his video below.
